overall

Saint Cloud is promoted as a premium bourbon, and bottles are priced accordingly. The company positions the product to have an upscale feel, coming in a black silk bag, and bottled in a sleek looking bottle. Additionally, the bottle comes with a second cork that is topped with a copper colored icarus holding a fleur-de-li, which is a nice nod to the fact that it’s Kentucky bourbon.

That said, packaging aside, $150 is a very steep asking price for a 7 year old single barrel bourbon, even if it is barrel proof. The bourbon itself has a lot of flavor, delivering a bold sip that isn’t shy about owning up to its high proof. It’s full of rich spicy flavors, sometimes to a fault, but overall is very good pour. While it’s always a gamble for single barrels at this price point, if you’re willing to pay the price of admission, Saint Cloud 7 Year Single Barrel will please.

The bottle being reviewed is from the “Icarus” barrel and is number 76.
